I'm sure you guys here about this all the time, but I want to be clear about my problem before I break out the soldering iron. I'm having a convergence issue, but only with the red color layer. It's warped in more than one corner, and when I went to adjust the Multipoint Convergence the crosshairs themselves were warped both horizontally, and vertically, in more than one place. If it is the convergence IC's could someone point me in the right direction as to where I could find them, and if possible mabey picture of them to verify I'm looking for the correct parts. Any help would be appreciated.

Your flyback has failed most likely...bad new is they are nearly impossible to find, This is a known issue on most of the models below. The site Tv Repair Kits can sometimes get replacements - but its not often.
This repair kit is known to work on Magnavox TV sets with the following Chassis/Model Numbers.
You probably got a convergence issue. What that is is when the RGB is out of allignment witch causes one color to show more the an other or vice versa. You going to have to have a repair guy come out and look at it.
The ssm is very exspensive at least 250-350 but it sounds like you only need the convergence repair kit. You can get the DPTV305-DPTV345 convergence repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com which also contains the Cd with instructions.
It sounds like multiple problems. First of all these sets are famous for bad coolant between the tubes and lenses causing the picture to be degraded causing the foggy picture. The fluid can be changed to clear up the halo's. The double images are convergence issues. Most likely both convergence amps need to be replaced. I hate to say it but it sounds like you got a money pit. Good luck. Thanks for using fixya.
Hi, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:
http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=3229 If you are not able to adjust the convergence using the remote you will need to replace the convergence chips.
1) Convergence menu does not work for one or more colors. Such as: Red moves up,down, but left or right fails.
2) Screen is bowed looking.
If you have one or more of the problems above you need to replace the convergence chips. You can get a kit and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com Hope this helps :)
The only real test is to try to adjust the convergence for each color...Red and Blue...If you cant move both colors in all directions - up - down - left - right...then your Tv has a convergence problem. Try in both 480 and 1080...if it can't be adjusted - replace the parts. I just did mine the other day
1st. Go back over your soldering and make sure you didn't break a trace and joints are solid.
2nd. Make sure you installed the correct value resistors in there places.
3rd. I believe the blue crt is on your right, follow the convergence leads down to the board to the 4pin plug. Go from pin 1 of the plug to pin 11 on each of the IC's ( 1at a time ) with an ohm meter, when you see 0 or just about 0 that will be the blue IC, I have the PTV 915 manual that i'm using. I suspect you will find a mistake along the way. Take your time and double check everything again and let me know. Good Luck!
After many hours of research, I was able to fix the missing AV5 channel. I had to access the service menu using code 062596 and the Status/Info button on the Philips remote. There was an error message that had to be cleared and then AV5 needed to be turned on in the options menu. While I was in there, I also turned on the WSCR option, giving me two additional wide screen aspect settings that had also disappeared. I advise you not to go into the service menu unless you do your homework and document each setting before you make changes. Good Luck!
